You will have good coverage in town and along the highway corridors but if you live up the mountain  or in a more secluded valley a little way from town then you may have issues getting good reception. There's a good hour between Hope and Merritt that has no service at all along the coquihalla highway but otherwise telus has very good coverage along all the mountain highways.

Telus is the only bar in town....I don't see why you can't use pm.

 @willowmeadows : Wow. Who knew someone would move _to_ Boston Bar. 🙂 Boston Bar is in a valley. BC is almost all valleys. There's a large plateau in the centre. That's it. Unlike Edmonton. Or the not particularly real mountains out east. So BC is a challenge for the providers to provide good reception. But if click on the Coverage Maps link at the bottom of this page you'll see their coverage. Always remember that coverage maps are rather optimistic.

And this place is nation-wide...no roaming other than in the states with add-ons.

....and keep your information on the acct, they charge tax based on the address on the system.  You will save a little bit with your AB address instead of your new BC address

just contact public mobile when you get here and tell them what is going on

@softech 

Your tax rate is based on your phone number not your address.

Welcome to beautiful BC!

 

Edit: Looking at the cell tower map the only service provider for Boston Bar appears to be telus. There is a rogers tower much farther away but the topography could interfere with its signal range.
